You’re always welcome at our clinics but we are always pleased to say farewell. It means that you’ve fully recovered from your ache, pain or injury! You always have the reassurance that should ache,pain or injury strike again, for whatever reason, Cedar Hall Clinics are here to help with our team of highly skilled Osteopathy, Acupuncture, Physiotherapy & Sports Injury practitioners.
As recovery from pain, injury or surgery continues, some patients may benefit from our unique Rehabilitation and 1-2-1 Prescriptive Exercise. This exercise prescription is usually part of your overall osteopathic consultation, however if you require a more intense programme, additional sessions can be arranged with our Rehabilitation specialists. Our practitioners will provide you with a personal exercise plan and make sure you have a full understanding of each exercise. Each movement will be demonstrated and your technique checked whilst performing the exercises. A comprehensive exercise pack will be given to each patient for use at home.
These exercises allow you to build strong stabilizing muscles, decrease your incidence of aches and pains and strengthen your abdominal core. Your core comprises of many muscles that need to be strong and balanced so you can perform everyday activities with ease.They are also vital in all sports and without capable core muscles there is a high risk of injury in other parts of the body due to imbalances.
Our Rehabilitation team help athletes recover from injury with treatments and exercise regimes that help reduce pain, promote movement of stiffened muscles, restore normal function of the injured site, and prevent recurring damage. Various techniques used in rehabilitation have significance of their own in improving physical performance and restoring athletes to normal activity:
Stretching and bending exercises improve flexibility of the injured muscles
Massage techniques relieves the tension of the muscles and improves the blood flow to the injured area
Stability exercises restores the functions and movements of the broken or injured joints
Sports Injuries are often the result of overuse and over training, such as runner’s knee or tennis elbow where the athlete pushes his/her body to the limit. Sports injuries can also occur due to under training or poor training practices. Not stretching or having a good warm up regime can also lead to injury as the body is not prepared for the exercise.
So whether you are a weekend warrior or an elite athlete, osteopathy can help with prevention of injury as well as treatment of many common sporting or recreational injuries. Ankle and shoulder injuries are very common in amateur and professional sport. These injuries are often neglected or poorly treated which can lead to recurrence and early degenerative conditions.
Some common sporting injuries are neck & back strain, shoulder, elbow & wrist injuries e.g. tennis/golf elbow, hip, knee, leg & ankle injuries, groin strain, achilles tendonitis, cartilage/ligament strain and more.
